[Oregon Railroad & Navigation exhibit promoting Washington and Oregon]

View of an exhibit created by the Union Pacific Railroad and Oregon-Washington Railroad & Navigation Companies promoting Washington and Oregon for settlers, ca. 1910. Exact location of the exhibit is not identified, but it may be Chicago as the photographer is identified as Frank M. Hallenbeck of Chicago. A large group of people are gathered in front of what appear to be mainly apples. Various items are framed and hanging above the displays, including a framed brochure "Walla Walla Valley, Washington" published by the Walla Walla Commercial Club and the Sunset Magazine Homeseekers Bureau in 1910. It hangs just above the "hing" in Washington on the left. Other framed brochures published by the Homeseekers Bureau for Mosier, The Dalles, and Newberg, OR hang above the exhibits. A large drawing of the Hood River Valley hangs on the right. Signs on the apple display on the left read: 'Walla Walla Valley apples won at the National Apple Show," and another reads, "Southwest Washington Development Assn., Tacoma Chamber of Commerce." Edward Nolan collection. Frank M. Hallenbeck, photographer
